College Ministry Partners

Kingdom Workers are often looking for Christian colleges and universities to complete their studies and some are looking at going into full-time ministry.

Kingdom Workers are often looking for Christian colleges and universities to complete their studies and some are looking at going into full-time ministry.

Each year at Christ In Youth conferences, thousands of high school and junior high students accept Christ, rededicate their lives, and many make the decision to serve Christ vocationally. Meanwhile, Bible colleges and Christian universities have faced declining enrollment and offer fewer ministry majors. Together, we can help stop this trend by connecting these inspired students to the leadership future they have been called to in Christ. By sending representatives to CIY events, your students can help influence the academic future decisions of thousands of pre-college students across the nation.


CIY has been amplifying the call of Christ and challenging students to become Kingdom Workers since 1968. In addition to our events, resources, and international trips, CIY conferences attract more than 77,000 students each year, serving over one million students in the past 50 years. These future Christian leaders are also excellent leads for your school, and CIY's College Ministry Partnership program can help make the connection.


If you’re a Christian college or university and have interest in representing your school at our events, please let us know! Send us an email: collegepartners@ciy.com.

How It Works

Just by sending reps, you’ll get:

  • Display space at each attended event to connect with attendees and give away approved materials, resources, and scholarships.
  • If you attend at least 3 events, you'll receive a list of students who made vocational ministry decisions at all of the year's CIY MOVE events- 1,000 or more ministry-minded students who need the ministry training your school can provide!

College Reps who attend MOVE or MIX, here is what you need to know about it:

  • MOVE is a week-long program for high school students. Our MOVE events range in size from 500 to 2,500 people. Some start on Sundays, and some start on Mondays.
  • Each week of MOVE will be limited to 12-18 college representative spots, filled on a first-come/first-serve basis.

So, how much is it?

We offer a variety of different packages that include things like data lists, advertising, exclusive sponsorships, etc. Each package has offers and pricing. Or you can create your own package by choosing the number of events you want to attend and the specific advertising or data that is most important to your school.

Just want to check us out?

That’s great! You can choose to send reps to up to 3 events for FREE.

If we purchase the data list, when can we expect to receive it?

The Vocational Ministry Decisions list is usually available in early September. The Full Data list will be available sometime between the end of September and the end of October. The fluctuation is due to the amount of data entry necessary to complete the list.

If you purchased either of these lists, it will be emailed to the email address found on your 2022 College Ministry Partnership registration. If you’d like the data sent to a different person or email address, please let us know.

What does our booth space look like?

You will receive a standard 8ft x 4ft conference table to use at your booth. You do not have to use the table, but that is the amount of space you will have to work with.

Where will our booth be located?

Each campus is different, but we always try to put our College Ministry Partners in the path of the most student traffic. We want you to meet and greet as many students as possible!

Can we sell our own merchandise?

No, we do not allow any outside sales at our events.

Can we give away free stuff?

Of course! There are only a few restrictions. We ask that you do not give out gum or suckers as they tend to be found all over the floor of our auditoriums. We also ask that if you are going to give out mass quantities of an item, please check with us first. For example, if you want to give everyone a water bottle, but we are also selling water bottles at our merchandise station, we can’t permit you to do that.

Does CIY take care of housing and meals for representatives while they are at each week of MOVE?

Yes! They will be housed on campus and they will be able to eat in the cafeteria just like all the attendees. The only meal that is not covered is lunch on Day 4.

Is housing covered in between events?

In some cases. When an event is at a location for multiple weeks in a row (i.e. Tennessee 6, 7, 8) and your representatives are attending consecutive weeks at that location, they are welcome to remain in their lodging through the weekends. For all other weeks or if your reps are coming into a location that has already been at that location for a week, please contact us. Each campus is different about when they allow us to start staying there and each tour has different arrival times. We will be able to let you know what “between event days” we will be able to house your reps. If we are unable to house them, you will be responsible for taking care of their lodging.

Are meals covered in between events?

No, CIY does not provide meals in between events. Meals are only covered from Day 1 lunch to Day 5 dinner (excluding Day 4 lunch) by CIY.

Is bedding provided for our reps?

Reps attending MOVE events at Ozark Christian College, Lee University, and John Brown University will need to provide their own bedding as these locations do not provide it for them. Reps attending MOVE events at Cedarville University will need to provide their own pillows. All other locations have bedding available, but reps are welcome to bring their own if they prefer.

Will married representatives be able to house together?

It depends on the campus and the way that housing is set up. While we would certainly try to accommodate them, we can't make any guarantees that they will be able to stay together.

What kinds of things will our representatives be helping CIY with?

A very wide variety! Selling merchandise, welcoming youth ministers and students when they arrive, putting together registration bags, refereeing tournaments, playing a character on stage, running cameras, counting the offering, helping with merchandise inventory, security, and other small tasks. All of which provide great opportunities for your reps to connect with the students in attendance.

If our school representatives are helping CIY run the event, how will they have time to be at their booth?

While your representatives do spend a good amount of time helping us run the event, we are very conscious of the real reason they are there – to promote their school! At the beginning of the week, all the reps will sign up for tasks throughout the week. It's good to remind your reps that as they're signing up for tasks to make sure that if a task takes place during a high-traffic time (i.e. when doors open for the session), at least one representative is not helping CIY, but staying at their booth. We encourage your reps to make sure there is always someone at their booth!

Do our reps have to be college students or could they be college staff?

Your reps can be anyone attending or employed by your school. Most schools send college students, but there are several schools that send admissions counselors as well. If you send college staff, make sure they know that they will be expected to help run the events just like all the other reps.

Do we have to run background checks on our representatives?

Yes, and there are some locations where fingerprinting is required as well. You will be notified about the background check requirements after you register.

When do my reps have to arrive at each event?

For every event, there is a College Rep Meeting at 5 p.m. the day before the event starts. At this meeting, they will receive information on their housing, meet the staff for the week, meet other college representatives, learn about and sign up for different tasks, be given a quick overview of the week, and get their booth set up. This meeting is mandatory for all college representatives to be in attendance.

When is information due for the reps we’ve chosen to attend the events?

All information about representatives is due by May 2. There is a form you will receive and fill out for each individual representing your school.

When is the payment due for our package?

50% of total costs are due on or before May 1, 2023. The remaining balance of total costs is due on or before July 31, 2023.

Payments can be made online via credit card or by mailing a check to (all checks must be made payable to Christ In Youth, Memo: College Partnerships):


Christ In Youth


P.O. Box B


Joplin, MO 64802

I’m trying to register for an event, but it says “sold out.” Why can’t I get in?

Unfortunately, there is a limit to the number of reps that we can have at each event. That number varies, as each campus is different. If you have any questions, please email us or call us at (417) 781-2273.
